Obituary

             Edward Fredrick Gall, age 83, of Peotone, passed away on Saturday, February 12, 2022 at his home.

            He was born on June 27, 1938 in Chicago, the son of Edward J. and Justine “Cooky” (Dole) Gall.  Ed grew up and attended school in Peotone.  He was a United States Navy Veteran serving from 1956-1958.  He married Sandra Hawryluk on March 21, 1975 in Kankakee.  He served as an auxiliary police officer in Peotone and was a volunteer member of the Peotone Fire Department.  He worked full time as a Village of Monee police officer until leaving to work as a Will County Sherriff Office Police Deputy until his retirement.  Ed was a member of the Amvets Post 1493 and the Peotone American Legion Post 392.  He was a Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears fan.  Ed was an avid Ford enthusiast and enjoyed attending car shows.  He was a steadfast reader of John Grisham novels and a lifelong gardener.  Ed enjoyed traveling to warm tropical destinations with a special fondness of “Rand McNally mapping” his treasured cross-country family vacations.  He had a mischievous sense of humor, a uniquely remarkable whistle, an ice-cream-all-the-time grand-parenting style, and was the loyal patriarch of his family.

Gall of Peotone; his children, Amy (Andrew) Crawford of Fairfield, CT, Theresa (Jack) Fitzpatrick of Falls Church, VA, and Mark (Nicole) Gall of Peotone; his grandchildren, Madeline and Benjamin Crawford, Eloise and John Hunter Fitzpatrick, Emerson, Lilla, and Reid Gall, and Louis Sirois; and numerous nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward J. and Justine “Cooky” Gall; and 3 sisters, J.
